Maine Bar Rule 12 Continuing Legal Education became
effective January 1, 2001. Rule 12 requires all active
resident and non-resident attorneys to complete 11 hours
of continuing legal education each year, including one
hour of ethics. Half of the requirement may be earned
through the use of self-study materials, to include audio,
video, written text, teleconference, satellite, webcasts
or online programming. Resident active attorneys are
required to provide proof of attendance for programming
and report annually at registration time. Non-resident
active attorneys are able to self-certify their attendance
at registration time. There are a number of approved CLE
courses listed on our website. Attorneys can access CLE
attendance by entering their bar number and PIN number.
Non-compliance with CLE can result in a summary suspension.
